I'm going to replace the headset on my 1985 CB450SC with the All Balls unit. (lol) See here for model: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GZQ3XW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3E01TT185XJY3

Am I correct that I need to remove the old crown race from the stem and install a new one?

If so, can this be done at home? I've done removal and setting on bicycle forks with simple tools. I pried the old one off with a screwdriver and set the new one with a piece of PVC pipe.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Both of the original outer races are removed to accept the new tapered races. Simply drive them out with a punch and hammer.

Thanks for the help! Got this figured out with the help of a local shop. Was able to drive the bearings out with a center punch. Going to pay the shop to remove the old crown race and press the new one on.
